Superman and Lois Lane are taking a break from married life in Brian Michael Bendis’ run on DC’s Action Comics.
The conclusion of Action Comics #1003 revealed that Lois Lane has been living in Metropolis while Superman believed she was in outer space with their son Jon. In Action Comics #1004, Lois Lane explains that she has lost herself in being a mother and wife, expressing a desire to return to her life as an investigative reporter. After revealing that she left Jon with Superman’s biological father Jor-El because she feels he no longer needs her, Lois explains that she believes that same is true for Clark.
While Lois explains that they are not breaking up, the couple will continue the public cover story that they separated due to marriage problems, which they devised to explain Lois and Jon’s absence during their trip in space. Now, Lois will focus her efforts on her journalism career and her investigation into Lex Luthor.
